The feedback I received was on a whole good, I don’t need to do anymore shooting til after Christmas if any at all. I have already taken more than 500 images. And with today being the moving day of Chan and Alan I feel it is a good time to stop and reflect on what I have already taken.
The main feedback I got was I need to understand the relationship Chan and Alan have on the audience. Although I understand the relationship, I know need to past that through my images to the viewer. A suggestion was made that I used film, or some kind of movement and sound to create a sort of slideshow. I am definitely going to be researching into this as I think it would be a great way to get emotion and would make a great documentary editorial piece, where instead of telling a story I am instead showing there relationship. For this I need to explore sound and moving image as a photographer.
I will be doing this over the next few days as well as narrowing down my edit further. I am excited to try this as it not something I have down before and think it could have a bigger impact than a photo book.
I think I am going to approach it by finding software to use and get to grips with it, then at some of my images that go into a sequence then have Chan and Alan talking over the top and also include the noise of the spinning wheel and organ. I need to also think about the type of things I’d want to record. Should I ask questions? Or should I just get there normal chatter?
Alot to think about since the session.
I feel sad that Chan and Alan have moved out of this house, They have now been a big part of my life for 7 years and its going to be strange them not living around the corner, where we can just walk straight in for a cuppa and a chat. I am glad however they have moved into a bungalow where they will be more comfortable and hope this is a great new Chapter in their life.
Stand out image:
I captured this image in their house, for me this is a stand of image and what I wanted to achieve. To me this is a symbol of them, quirky, never apart, abit rough around the edges, but still going strong. I was happy when the image stood out to my tutor also.
